Elegant Elephant


30x22 on Saunders 140 lb cold press paper, drawn with wax crayon, splashed underpainting acrylic abstract patterns, let dry, stamped with black ink and brush for diamond shapes. I let dry, rewet front and back, then with sponge brush added gray green latex acrylic very wetly, and darker blue gray on his body and trunk.
C&C welcome.

Re: Elegant Elephant

What a great piece, I love the work and colors on the elephants body in contrast with the background.
